Abstract
Crises illuminate the inequalities that we tend to overlook in normal times and COVID-19 is no exception. In this blog, Naila Kabeer (LSE) draws on some explicit and implicit ways of classifying workers that are emerging in the current pandemic to illuminate long-existing inequalities in labour markets across the world and associated inequalities in the quality of life and likelihood of death.
